Props Arrive To the Bourne Wood ‘Fictional Village’ Set for THOR: THE DARK WORLD
Now showing the Bourne Wood set for the Marvel sequel being dressed with village-like props, more set photos have surfaced, as well a potential detail regarding the battle between kingdoms.
Readying for filming on the location next week, Monday, props and lighting equipment have been installed to the set of Thor: The Dark World, located in Bourne Wood, Farnham, Surrey, England. As previously reported, a fictional village is being established with yurts, pillars and village-like dressing. And thanks to UK photographer Wayne Howes, we have six fantastic photos showcasing all of the impressive work, so far.
Filming commenced today at Shepperton Studios. The sequence that will be filmed on the set pictured below involves about 300 extras, and a battle between two kingdoms ensuing before the God of Thunder himself, Thor arrives and “saves the day.” The shoot is expected to last ten days, and is due to occur only during the day.
Regarding exactly who these two kingdoms will be, I was told by a local UK actor that his ginger beard landed him a role in the sequel as the leader of a “Maurauder Army,” but he had to turn down the offer. With that in mind, it's possible the fictional village constructed is home to this Maurauder Army, and is invaded by the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim, before Thor and other Asgardians take over. Just a theory, but what do you think?

Exploring Thor's relationship with the Asgardian all-father Odin, as well earthbound companion Jane Foster, “Thor: The Dark World” follows the God of Thunder to The Nine Realms beyond Asgard and earth. And as his evil half-brother, Loki, returns for Asgardian justice, a new threat rises. Also rejoining Thor are his fellow Asgardians, Lady Sif, gatekeeper Heimdall and Warriors Three, as they encounter mythical Norse creatures among evildoers.
